Sophie and the Heidelberg Cat

By Andrew Wilson, Illustrated by Helena Perez Garcia

The Bible tells stories of hundreds of people, and all of them disobey God . . . except one. So hope doesn’t come from the good things we do. It comes as a gift, from what Jesus has done.

Sophie, a little girl upset after disobeying her parents, learns the basics of the gospel of grace from a neighborhood cat through a conversation based on the first question and answer of the Heidelberg Catechism: What is your only comfort in life and in death? That I am not my own, but belong . . . to my faithful Savior, Jesus Christ.

Weaving accessible truths with whimsical illustrations and engaging rhymes, this book will help both you and your children understand grace in a fresh way.

Endorsements:

“I think kids of all ages will enjoy the intriguing dialogue between Sophie and her neighbor’s cat. It gives parents a lot to think about, too. Even better— everyone will remember the most comforting, time-tested answer to the question of all questions: What is your only comfort in life and in death?
Gloria Furman, author, Missional Motherhood and Treasuring Christ When Your Hands Are Full

“Outstanding! A beautifully written and illustrated book. Sophie and the Heidelberg Cat engages the youngest child with its splendid color and images. Written in poetic style, the dialogue between Sophie and the cat visualizes for little ones what guilt, forgiveness, and hope in Christ look like. Our six-year-old was simply riveted.”
